The spear is a weapon available to players from early stages of the game. The spear has an attack range of 3.5 m and can be used in both melee combat and as a ranged weapon.


  • Attacking a mob (melee combat): place the spear in an active hotbar slot and press or hold left mouse button to strike the target.
  • Attacking a mob (ranged combat): place the spear in an active hotbar slot and press or hold right mouse button to cast the weapon at the target.


Tools are items commonly used by players and are generally equipped in the hotbar. Up to four tools can be placed on the tool rack, a specialized wall-mounted storage container. Spears do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers.


There are no Spears made from Iron or higher tier metals.
